From the moment I met Andrea who owns Pearce & Pinkerton Insurance Agency, I knew she was going to be a great bride. She was organized, knew exactly what she wanted and the couple was ready to party the night away. This wedding was in deed, about renewing the vows they had spoken to each other 20yrs ago, back in the 80’s but it was also more about the celebration of their life together and getting the party started.
The theme was Disney and the color was whimsical white and Wedgwood blue, just as it had been back in their 80’s wedding. The Pearce couple said something to me that was very true. They said, when they got married 20 yrs ago, they didn’t really get to enjoy the whole reception because it was so much about taking pictures, greeting their guests and going through all the steps of a first time marriage. This wedding was going to be different. There ceremony and reception took place at Benvenuto Restaurant in Boynton Beach. The ceremony was short and quaint. James sister, Marcy Pearce had the pleasure to officiate the ceremony. I think she cried more than the couple. After the ceremony, guests were lead to a fun cocktail hour where they had a photo booth set up for guests. People started to get their party on, right from the start. After the cocktail hour, guests were lead to the reception room. There we had an introduction to the bride and grooms family and the first dance was a well rehearsed tango. Andrea and James looked so happy and excited, although I know they were nervous, they pulled it off with out a glitch.
The rest of the night was all about the party. Pure Platinum provided the DJ, Photo booth and dancers. Last but not least, they had a custom slide show that had memories from the past 20yrs of their happy life together. It was really beautiful and everyone really enjoyed looking back in time and how far along they had come.
Twenty years is a long time to be together, it so wonderful to see couples celebrate that. Instead of taking a long vacation, the couple decided the best anniversary gift was to throw a bash and share it with their closest friends. Being a bride to be at this point, Andrea and James are such an inspiration. I hope they inspire you to celebrate every year and they are proof true love does last and it is real!
Andrea & James: Congratulations on such an amazing milestone in your love! Hope to be there and assist in your 40th year anniversary! Wishing you a continued life of love and happiness!
